Market development

The Bloomberg Barclays MSCI Global Green Bond Index delivered a total return of +1.20% this month. The yield on 10-year German treasury bonds ended the month slightly lower at -0.45%. The credit spread (OAS) on the global green bond index tightened 12 bps to 84 bps at the end of the month. Risky assets continued their rally in the first week of June. Central banks continued to expand their monetary policy tools, which helped to sustain the recovery that started at the end of March. The European Central Bank announced an increase of its Pandemic Emergency Purchase Program. During the month, investor sentiment turned negative as some countries reported bad news on the development of Covid-19.The primary market for green bonds remained very busy, with both sovereigns and corporates printing new green deals. EIB, Republic of Hungary, Citigroup and Enexis were among the larger issuers of green bonds last month. Germany announced it will launch a green government bond in the second half of this year.

ESG Integration policy

This fund invests in bonds whose proceeds are used towards an environmental objective, referred to as green bonds. The eligibility of green bonds is based on an internally developed framework that takes into account the ICMA Green Bond Principles, the Climate Bond Initiative and/or the EU Green Bond Standard. We identify and evaluate the allocation of the investment proceeds in line with the EU Taxonomy and EU’s six environmental objectives. We verify that the bond proceeds are allocated to projects that positively contribute to at least one of the six objectives, and do not significantly harm the other five: climate change mitigation, climate change adaptation, sustainable use and protection of water and marine resources, transition to a circular economy, waste prevention and recycling, pollution prevention and control, protection of healthy ecosystems. We require the bond issuers to report on the use of proceeds. In addition to the use-of-proceeds screening, we assess the wider sustainability strategy of the issuer. We require issuers to respect international norms related to conduct such as international labor rights, human rights and the UN Global Compact.

Expectation of fund manager

{{'fund.detail.general.perDate' | labelize:[ fundDate(fund.fundFacts.date,'llll') ]}}

In credit markets, we remain constructive on investment grade bonds, but are more cautious on high yield as an asset class. High yield companies are more vulnerable, given the economic growth shock that comes with Covid-19. The economic fallout that we saw in 20Q2 was unlike anything we have ever seen in our careers. But government fiscal stimulus is now financed by central banks. We have our doubts about this in the long run. For now, it creates a strong technical but fundamentals might strike back. The fund maintained its small overweight in duration. As yields rose in the first week of the month this position was slightly negative for performance. Nonetheless after the dovish ECB meeting, rates calmed down and bonds started rallying, making up for lost ground. We expect green bond issuance from the German, Swedish and Danish governments. Also, corporates and financials continue to tap into the growing demand for sustainable investments. As a result, the global green bond market should continue to develop at a rapid pace.
